Also, I bought the 15" macbook pro. I think that is the way to go. However, I am a Mac person. Has anyone found any books they really liked on the reading list?
Since I work at a hospital and am involved in patient safety initiatives, I enjoyed The Malpractice Myth
. The Buffalo Creek Disaster
is a great, quick read. This weekend I am going to start I Dissent: Great Opposing Opinions in Landmark Supreme Court Cases
As far as law school prep books, I have yet to start Getting to Maybe
, but it is in my stack. I've read DeLaney's Learning Legal Reasoning
, Thinking Like a Lawyer by Schauer
(pretty dry), and The Legal Analyst: A Toolkit for Thinking about the Law by Farnsworth
I know that I don't need to read these books or do anything to prep this summer. But I started one and remembered how much I enjoy reading books. Reading them has been getting me excited about law school and back in the habit of reading things other than financial statements, internal reports, etc. Also, I don't really need to relax this summer because I have been relaxing for the last five years. If I had just graduated from college like a lot of the entering class, believe me the last thing I would be doing is reading books on the recommended list.
